Udo Island(우도), which is known as Cow Island(牛岛 in Chinese), is a 15mins ferry ride away from the main Jeju Island. Located over at the eastern end of Jeju Island, the Island was named as Udo because it resembles a lying cow.
Udo Island is about 17km wide and which no doubt, Olle Trail Route 1 starts from this mini island itself.
Over here, you could see many flowers and crops grown across the island which were separated by Jeju basalt rock walls. At the same time, the roads over in Udo island were really bumpy and narrow with many curvy turns, where the bus tour-guide joked that he’s going to speed like a car racer(with the bus, but he didn’t. :P).
Found a clip on the net about Udo Island.
That’s Calvin and I over at Seongsan Port.
(I have no idea why he wants to strangle me.=x)
The queue for getting the ferry tickets. =/
That’s the huge ferry that ferry us to Udo Island and some cars as well~
Oh yeah! You can rent bike/ATV/scooters or even take a bus ride to travel around Udo Island.
PS: The bus driver will speak in Korean. So if you’re not interested in knowing what he’s speaking, it’s fine.
Rough Estimation Rate for Rental:
Bike: 5,000k won/hr
AVT: 20,000k won/hr
Scooter: 15,000k won/hr
Bus Ride: 5,000k won(all day round)
Saw Tteokbokki at one of the stall and couldn’t resist my temptation while walking up to Udo-bong. *Slurp*
HAHAHA! Got caught in action
At the peak of Udo-bong
Yeah! That’s one of the famous floating restaurant in Udo with Seongsan Ilchulbong at the back.
Pretty canola flowers but I’m going against Calvin to do the gwiyomi. *LOLS*
There’s even field trips for little kids! Cute!
Next location is to head up to Udo Lighthouse Park, which is located right up at the PEAK.
Midway of the love-hate stairs
Calvin happily posing for photo cause he ran up first, leaving the sick me stroll like an old granny.
Look at what I found!! *ewwwwwwwww* RIP sun-dried lizzy~
Beautiful day view of the Lighthouse.
Let’s scream! *AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH*
10mins break and here we go again.
Seriously, you can NEVER gain weight in Korea despite all the eating and munchies along the way. Just walking alone burns all your calories. *HAHA*
Hello Canola. You’re beautiful 🙂
Random shot at one of the shop-houses cafe.
We hitched on the bus and arrived to the next destination, Seobin Baeksa Beach.
Seobin Baeksa (a coral beach designated as Natural Monument No. 438) has appeared regularly in films (including Il Mare) and TV commercials thanks to its breathtaking white sand and emerald blue sea. The sea around the beach showcases different colors depending on the water level. These make Seobin Baeksa one of the most popular tourist attractions along with Hallasan Mountain on Jeju Island. (cr: KTO)
So pretty right! Look at that clear blue water!
I bet you guys want to jump in and swim, just like me. 😦
*#$%^&WHY AM I WEARING TIGHTS THAT DAY!!$%^&*(
SELCA TIME! ㅎ ㅎ ㅎ
Look at the white pebbles!
*Ahhhhh* Feels so 幸福 to be on the beach. *LOL*
PS: Please do not attempt to bring home those pebbles. It’s illegal and you’ll be FINE! (>_<)
So we headed back to Jeju main land to watch the performance of Haenyo Diver Women(read HERE).
We drove aimlessly around that area and finally settled down at a random local restaurant for lunch.
Creative decoration! 😀
Menu of what selling in the restaurant
Seriously, you guys just have to be brave and walk into any local restaurant and try their food.
I realized that most of the menu will placed outside of the restaurant(like above) to people/tourists to view before you decided if you want to give it a try. 😀
Simple yet delicious banchan. (we LOVE that little crab banchan on the bottom left. :P)
Finally got a taste of 부추전 (Buchu jeon)
Here comes the STAR – 전복죽(Jeonbok Juk/Abalone Congee)
The first look of it might not be appealing to many of you, but you’ll be amazed by the taste. 🙂
The entire abalone(yes, even with the shell) were used as ingredient to cook this dish.(The ahjumma told us that they’ll crashed and grind the shell to powder form, mixed and cooked it with the congee)
Kind of funny, but it has a little sweet taste aftermath. *HAHA*
Do You Know: 전복죽(Jeonbok Juk) is one of the common food yet MUST TRY for tourists who visit to Jeju Island? 😀
So what are you waiting for?
I’m feeling so hungry and slight withdrawal syndrome while editing the entry for you guys.
I hope you guys had fun reading through my entries though. 🙂
